Emergency and Safety Information for AirVenture Oshkosh 2014
An EAA priority is to protect the safety and security of all our members, guests, volunteers, and staff at AirVenture Oshkosh. EAA has created General Emergency Procedures to help ensure the proper handling of all emergency situations.
General Emergency Procedures:
If there is an emergency, make sure to call 911 from any phone, do not wait for others to do it.
If you have an EAA two-way radio, call SECURITY DISPATCH on the “official” channel, giving details of location and needs, and they will call 911. Security monitors all EAA frequencies 24
-hours a day.
Some business phones on site require dialing 9 for an outside line before dialing 911. Stickers are placed on these phones, with proper instructions.
- In the event of an aircraft accident, the radio code name “Red Bird” will indicate an emergency situation requiring fire and ambulance equipment. Until an “all-clear” is broadcast, only emergency messages are to be aired via two-way radio.
- Unless you are directly involved in rescue operations, DO NOT PROCEED TO ANY ACCIDENT. Help is needed in crowd control and traffic direction AWAY from the scene.
- An accident or incident occurring on airport areas controlled by the FAA Tower will be coordinated through them by use of radio or telephone.
- NON-EMERGENCY First Aid is available at the Emergency Medical Building located northwest of the FAA Tower and at the First Ad Station located on Schaick Avenue in Camp Scholler.
Report any suspicious activity or behavior to SECURITY DISPATCH at (920) 230-7754.
Additional Safety Measure:
With the recommendation by an outside auditing review and recognizing it as a best practice for protecting our members, guests, volunteers and staff, EAA will be adding additional security cameras (no audio) in all admission locations including camper registration. These cameras are in addition to the current cameras located in the main entrance of the AirVenture Museum, the Air Academy Lodge and the Wearhouse.
